Reaching deep into the back of a kitchen cabinet and feeling around for a notepad, I stumbled upon a treasure. Six o'clock, the dinner hour and my pantry was empty...obviously it was past time to prepare a grocery list. But I made a feeble attempt anyway.
For a moment I unmistakably heard her delightful, teenage voice shouting to me from the scribbles..."Hi Mom!"
And then I wept...big heaping, body shaking sobs!
